Herbert Kilpin: AC Milan's Nottingham-born founder to be honoured
An Englishman credited with founding football giants AC Milan is to be honoured in his home city.
Herbert Kilpin left Nottingham to work in Italy in the 1890s and later set up the club, becoming the team's first superstar in the process.
Robert Nieri has been fundraising for a plaque to go outside his birthplace to mark 100 years since his death.
He said Kilpin was the "father of Italian football" and deserved more recognition in Nottingham.
